While children learn a lot in school, there are many life skills that can’t be taught in a classroom setting. In addition to expanding knowledge from in-school lessons, world learning allows kids to gain invaluable real-world skills they’ll leverage for the rest of their lives.
Traveling gives children valuable perspectives about the world and teaches humility. "Travel and educating children about their roles as citizens of the world when they're young ensures they will retain that message into their adult years," Dr. Robin Hancock, a global education specialist with Bank Street College, told Travel + Leisure.
By involving your student in the planning and scheduling of your travels, a learning by traveling lifestyle also teaches children flexibility and decision-making.
